Lapsang Souchong Tea

Wonderful, tarry smokiness to this most fantastic Lapsang Souchong tea. It is said to have been discovered by accident, during the Qing era, when an army delayed the drying of the tea. After the soldiers left, in order to dry the leaves quickly to get them to market on time, the workers lit pinewood and hung the leaves over the fire.The smoked flavour created a sensation - a new tea was born. I love everything about this loose leaf tea.

Great taste and aroma

I blend this with Assam to make a strong tea with a smokey flavour. Do not use too much by or it will overpower the brew.

I let the first cup brew for too long resulting in a slight bitter taste. Since then brewed for no more than 4 minutes which gives a great flavour.
